My August has been full of activities starting off with my Annual stint at the Festival of Quilts, helping out my lovely friends from New Zealand
|Kids Quilts Stand|
I took many photos. There were many more quilts this year and I have to say that the standard of work was exceptional
Here are just a few of my favourites
|A4 quilts made by Cancer survivors|
A great display of the 365 Challenge quilts
And the best in show - Philippa Naylor does it again
|to show the scale|
Friday started just as busy and then ....... I got the call
Emily Fia arrived on Friday morning weighing in at 8lbs 12oz
she is adorable and is already stolen our hearts
So I left the show on Saturday afternoon and headed over to meet the newest member of our family
I promise - no more baby photos!
I have also started an new scrappy quilt project
This time in more Autumnal colourways
All of the centre blocks are made and I am ready to start the border blocks
And as I had not done any sewing for .... ages and we had a good reason to pop a cork, this was my sewing refreshment!!
The southern part of the family arrived for a few days, and Little Miss O and I made her Daddy a birthday cake. She however was more interested in this...
We have been harvesting some of the Bramley Apples from our tree
And there are still loads to pick so I will be busy busy busy
I have finished August Mini Mania Challenge but the big reveal is not until tomorrow so you will have to wait to see.
I am now off to clear up the 5 broken glass baubles that have shattered when my Light Tree just fell over!
And I have made myself a promise that I will do more posts on here in future - where does the time go?
